Selene Sauvignon Blanc Hyde Vineyards 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Winery says: Aromas begin with white peach, pineapple, melon, and tangerine. This 2005 wine also has a very floral, blossomy character about it with pear blossom and honeysuckle tones in particular. The flavor concentration has wonderful intensity and impact in the mouth, with that just right balance between rich viscosity and good acidity. Hmm...sounds good but how does it taste? Anyway, this is a winner.

Selene Wines is a tiny producer of hand-crafted Napa Valley wines. Selene's wines are the personal winemaking expression of Mia Klein, a consulting winemaker. Mia Klein received her degree in Enology from U.C. Davis, and worked her way up from the cellar to assistant winemaker and then to winemaker. She worked at Chappellet and Robert Pepi. She then began her consulting career for wineries like Dalla Valle, Spottswoode, Araujo and Viader. Not long after she began consulting, she started Selene Wines. The Selene name comes from Greek mythology. There are three goddesses associated with the moon in this mythology; Artemis, the maiden goddess of the waxing moon, Selene, the mother goddess of the full moon, and Hecate, the wise crone goddess of the waning moon. Selene's output is exclusively focused on the Bordeaux varietals that thrive in great Napa Valley vineyards. Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc have been produced since 1991 and 1992 respectively. Cabernet Sauvignon and a Bordeaux blend (based on Cabernet Franc) called ‘Chesler’ have been produced since 2002. Chesler is a tribute to Mia’s mom, Eileen Chesler, and sports a label with her picture from the late 1940’s. Read less

Shows fragrant floral notes of honeysuckle and jasmine. Intense and complex, with fleshy peach and mango flavors.
